This Brain Café will explore how zero tolerance policies, high stakes testing, and racial disparities in school discipline feed the school-to-prison pipeline.

Everett Company will present a short performance featuring original song, dance and drama. Presenters will include parent advocate Osiris Harrell, who will share the story of how his daughter’s arrest in school spurred him to action, and Theresa Fox, an English teacher at Nathan Bishop Middle School, who will share her vision of a school that serves all students. Conversation between the audience and presenters will complete the evening.
